Kindergarten artists created from their imaginations this week, after inspiration from the book Jeepers Creepers.
We discussed the different kinds of shapes from which the creatures were made, then we made a symmetrical organic shape for the start of our creature using the tried and true "paint drips rubbed in a folded paper" technique. We were excited by the results of these - some looked like crabs, some like mice, some like aliens!
Next, we cut them out and added shapes from a variety of other papers. Details were added from the "doo-dad box": buttons, beads, feathers, string, foamies, etc.
